International Tennis Hall of Fame inductee Andy Roddick said on Saturday he was honoured to have played in the era of the Big Four, but also acknowledged that they caused him no end of frustration during his career.
During the fun format of the tournament that allows fans to come and see veteran players enjoying the game of tennis, former Wimbledon champion Kim Clijsters was involved in a bit of audience interaction.
Not many had expected Venus to reach so far in the tournament but Serena Williams' resurgent sibbling, slowly and silently marched on, breezed past two of the favourites to reach her first Wimbledon final since 2009.
The 35-year-old Swiss was given his toughest test yet by the 11th seed, who beat him at the quarter-final stage in 2010, but he raised his game at the crucial moments to become the oldest men`s singles finalist here since Ken Rosewall in 1974.
Roger Federer, who has now reached 29 grand slam finals, winning 18, will face Marin Cilic in the final on Sunday.
Federer has now reached 29 grand slam finals, winning 18, and he has carved his way through the draw without dropping a set.
Cilic will face the winner of Friday's other semi-final between seven-times Wimbledon champion Roger Federer and Czech Tomas Berdych.
There have been times since her last Wimbledon triumph in 2008 against Serena when it seemed the older of the two Williams sisters would hang up her racket.
With Rohan Bopanna`s exit, India`s campaign in Wimbledon 2017 has also folded.
Federer stands 6ft 1in (1.85m) and weighs in at 187lbs (85kg); Berdych is 6ft 5ins (1.95m) and 200 lbs (91kg). Querrey and Cilic tower over him at 6ft 6ins (1.97m) and 210lbs (95kg) and 196lbs (89kg) respectively.
The evergreen 35-year-old is on a seven-match winning streak against Berdych, who has not beaten him since 2013, and the Swiss has yet to drop a set at this year`s championships.
Last week, Tomic was fined $15,000 by the sport`s governing body, the International Tennis Federation (ITF), after saying he was "bored" and had faked injury during a listless first-round defeat at Wimbledon.
Berdych has never won a grand slam, although he was Wimbledon runner-up in 2010 when he lost to Rafael Nadal.
The SW19 major has been kind to both sisters, who have turned its manicured lawns into something of a personal fiefdom since the turn of the century.
Venus, 37, took one hour and 16 minutes to wrap up the match in front of a capacity Centre Court crowd. It was her 87th win at the All England Club, a record for any active female player.
Murray slumped to a 3-6, 6-4, 6-7 (4/7), 6-1, 6-1 defeat to Querrey in the contest which lasted two hours and 41 minutes on the Centre Court.
